Handling Logstash Errors

Description

I propose that Logstash should create internal errors as a new event with a special tag - this could be configured as an input.

In some cases (See and LOGSTASH-1769) we can't convert/ensure the events will be delivered. Configuration should allow the dumping of debug information into a text file - like the message that caused the error, and the effect - (drop/force)
